Hosokawa Micron lead the way in nano particle production technology by combining expertise in traditional powder processing with particle design and new powder characteristics.
The chemistry and physics of nanotechnology present the opportunity to generate a range of new particles, the properties and characteristics of which can be selectively controlled by engineering to deliver performance quite different from that of micron sized particles.
Using nanotechnology, materials can effectively be made to be stronger and harder, lighter, more durable, more reactive, better electrical conductors and much, much more.
Nanoparticles have huge potential across many industrial areas which make their economic potential immense. Already words such as nano sized, nano particles and nanotechnology are immersed into everyday speech and the practical advantages offered by this technology are accepted in many things from household cleaners to drugs and cosmetics; however this easy acceptability should be balanced against environmental effects which in many cases are still unknown.
Hosokawa Micron has designed a nanotechnology product portfolio focusing on dry powder particles design technologies including Composing, Dispersion, Sphericalization, Coating, Agglomeration and Freeze Drying.
